Glimpy's surprisingly beautiful sister (Ava Gardner) is getting married to Jack (Rick Vallin), a young engineer, and moving to a 'bargain' suburban house neither has ever seen. During the honeymoon, the East Side Kids decide to fix up the house for the newlyweds...but mistakenly pick the 'haunted' house next door, which is occupied by some mysterious live men (Bela Lugosi), dodging in and out of secret panels and clearly up to no good

Who was one of the cops at the end?
I know nothing credits the cops who entered the "haunted" house and the newly-weds' house toward the end and his film biography doesn't mention this but is it possible that one of the two cops was Jack Carson. It sure looks like him.

amazing to see them with Ava Gardner, must have been an early picture for her. Enjoyable.

Da English language gets moidered
The East Side Kids vs. Bela Lugosi.
Lugosi doesn't have much to do in the film apart from tell his goons they're idiots. The East Side Kids slap each other around, murder the English language, and sing a song. It's easy to tell this movie was shot in six days, but it's harmless fun. The other commentator was right in that it's essentially a "Scooby-Doo" episode.
Three stars for Lugosi completists and for it being Ava Gardner's first credited film role.

Good clean fun. They do not make them like this any more! Campy and fun. This is way better than some of the junk they call movies today.

And I would have Gotten away with it to...
...if it weren't for you meddling kids. Funny movie for it's time, not grade "A", but ok.
This could have been an episode of Scooby Doo.
Definitely not a horror, comedy all the way through.
